"The 'U' went by the wayside, the same way the 'J' did. I think loss of interest because even if private property now, I don't believe the kids would have been blocked from such a long time tradition.   As for that…"

Hey, Jack!  Belen, huh?  Not for me, I need freeways and traffic.  In fact, I was just on the Big I a few days ago; we drove out for a family reunion and had a wonderful time.  That dry air at 100* didn't bother me one bit.  Oh, and no bad hair days, either!  We hit up the Lota Burger, Stufys, and even found a Mac's Steak in the Rough.  Ah, best home visit ever.  Only bummer was watching the forest fires (mom lives just south of Santa Fe).  All in all a great visit to our deeply missed Duke City.  Enjoy your time in AR-Kansas and I'll endure all the rain here on the gulf.  Can't even use a flat iron these days.

I'm afraid so, Jack.  Although I did get home for a few days last month.  I actually wept when we started through Tijeras Canyon --after NINE YEARS!

Jack, thanks for the well wishes; I hit the road on Wednesday :( and I'm totally bummed. First thing home is work on house, marry off a kid and sell the place. Then I'll be homeward bound! Wish me luck!!!

Have a great christmas and enjoy your posole!

Jack, currently on a visit with more family in Colorado.  Back to ABQ Friday for a few more days.  I saw ristras for sale along the roads and smelled fireplaces burning.  I have promised myself that I will move home, I have faith.  Mom has loaded me up with dry posole and some red chile to last the winter.  Do you need any???  Happy holidays!!!

Hey, Jack! Summer's here, dang it. Still longing for home and the high lonesome..... Hope yours is great.

jack--hope you're doing okay up there in the South (hey, up from where we are); all is good, spring is almost all the way here, and we'll be headed to the beach soon. I'm just dreading the humidity. Been home lately? I gotta wait for school to be over to travel--I'm still hoping to move home one day, so for now I'd love to travel the world a bit more, and drag the kids along. Have a good Easter!

I realized once I had asked that you had already indicated that you are in Arkansas. Fort Smith and Waco are probably pretty much alike. I too am NOT a southern culture fan.

I started in radio as a "beautiful music" automated DJ at KRST when it was still the sister station to KRZY. Then I moved upstairs (in the old round building on Mountain Road) and worked various daytime shifts on KRZY. Moved to KOB FM as Operations Manager in about 1974 and stayed there until I went back to UNM for my masters, finishing that up in 1977. After that I worked at various radio stations and ad agencies until I got too old and ugly to get work from the glamour boys and girls any longer. Thus my precipitous move to Texas. I have hated every single moment here. I have days when I think I'll burst if I can't get some green chili on my eggs or pizza or burgers.... Or get spiritual nourishment by gazing at the Sandias, or crunch into a Champagne Golden apple from Dixon's.....

Where are you living in "the south"? I live in Waco Texas, and although the rednecks here like to think thar part 'o the wald wald Weyust, they're just as southern as people from Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi. I am NOT a fan of the preposterous heat and humidity here; like you, I miss the Sandias and pinon smoke in the clear, cool air....
